Five (plus one) Sentence Fiction – Devotion

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

But, like always, I’ve gone against the rules and I’ve added one more sentence.

Hope you enjoy it still 🙂

This world has been plagued with evil for centuries—countless of men had died for countless reasons, some of which I’ve never really understood, wars had been started because of wounded egos, mass murders were done just because of the color of a person’s skin.

The man kneeling and begging in front of me is a prime example of someone infested with darkness, he begs miserably for his life to be spared; I wonder if he listened to the begging of the children he had murdered in cold blood.

I unsheathe my blade and I place the sharp edge on the nape of his neck (his begging grows louder), I touch the cross hanging around my neck and I offer up a silent prayer.

Not a minute later, the deed has been done and my blade is once again soaked with a sinner’s tainted blood.

I take the phone out of my pocket and I dial a number: “Your Holiness, it is done. I am ready for my next assignment.”

This world is filled with darkness and it is my duty to purge away the darkness.
